everyone was rested which meant happy.
there was a field trip to look forward to which meant out the door on time and smiling.
riley worked her magic which meant aubrey got into her car seat lickety split.
oh how i love escaping those little morning time battles.
i usually try to see the girls each week for lunch, but today they wanted to have lunch together.
so i made the mad dash from school to school to collect everyone and we made it with just enough time to spare for a quick drive-thru smoothie/milk shake run.
it was a perfect midday midweek break.
now that our weather is finally warming up, this might happen more often and at our favorite park i think!
i have been feeling a bit overwhelmed by the ever growing size of my to-do list lately.
usually i'm pretty good about tackling things one small project at a time. but sometimes they just all build up and it seems everywhere i look their is something to be wrapped up. lose ends and incomplete tasks get to me after awhile.
you know the feeling right?
putting away laundry reminds you of the closet you need to clean out and organize.
a trip to the basement reminds you of the gazillion trillion photos that still need to be printed and put into albums. seeing those albums reminds you of the baby books that have never been completed or even started.
good grief i feel and sound like a page right out of the book if you give a mouse a cookie about now.
little things are pretty easy for me. those i handle well and get accomplished...it's those elusive "big things" that are kicking my mental state to the curb today.
breaking projects into manageable pieces that seem to drag on forever can get to a girl after awhile.
this post from my friend megan helped.
it was just what i needed to hear.
this i do know...little things matter more and big things do get done...eventually!:)
have a happy day,
